Judge Dismisses Alycia Lane’s Lawsuit Against KYW

A Philadelphia judge has dismissed former KYW anchor Alycia Lane‘s defamation lawsuit against the CBS O&O.

Lane, who was a KYW anchor from 2003-08, accused her former station of defaming her after she was terminated from the station after she was involved in a physical altercation with a New York City police officer. She also brought a lawsuit against her former co-anchor, Larry Mendte, after he hacked into her email and leaked private information.

The judge threw out some, but not all, of the claims against Mendte. He pleaded guilty to hacking into her email in 2008.

Lane currently anchors the morning newscast on KNBC, the NBC O&O in Los Angeles.
